Under the Radar: Underground Zines and Self-Publications 1965-1975
Publisher: Spector Books
The mid-1960s witnessed a boom in underground and self-published works. Hematographs, mimeographs, and offset printing not only allowed for the production of small, low-cost print runs but also promote a unique aesthetic: using handwriting, scribbled drawings, assemblages of collaged visuals, snapshots, and comic strips. The typography consciously frees itself, in parallel to a liberalization of linguistic and visual forms of expression in the name of a new sensibility.
